Djembes & Accessories (DP)

The djembe is one of West Africa's best known instruments. This goblet-shaped drum is traditionally carved from a single piece of African hardwood - our African djembes are made from twebo (cedar) -and topped with an animal skin as a drumhead.

Lightweight djembes with synthetic bodies and goatskin heads are now becoming popular, especially in schools where the lack of weight is appreciated, but the sound remains authentic due to the goatkin head. If you prefer not to have a skin head we offer them with synthetic heads as well.
